    Yeah I am mostly deleting all the sales spam I get in my email inbox every day, very little temptation there at all. I did glance through End's sale section as well as J.Crew when I saw that 50% off sale code. But the couple things I saw that piqued my interest were either sold out or not in my size. Part of it may have to do with where we are in the season - I'm pretty much full up on winter clothes and spring/summer still seems like a lifetime away. (Though, speaking of spring/summer, I did drive with my windows rolled down today. In 30┬░F. Like ya do.)

      One thing that I've been doing is forcing myself to use the pieces that I rarely wear. They are nice but just not one of my favorites or not as easy to pair so they end up sitting on the bench for a long time. You get that fresh/new feeling even though it's an old piece.

        I feel the same way. Trying new outfits and wearing stuff I haut haven't worn a lot but I like. Enjoying what we have is very important.

          Kinda did the same thing today when I wore my Gustin GreyxBlacks for the first time in like 4 months. I have accumulated way too much denim in 2014.

            Same boat here. I just gave away 5 pairs of pants yesterday to Goodwill as I have way too many of the same type and I need to start either wearing them or tossing them.

                    Can you update the list please?

                    I've saved over a thousand dollars so far that I would have spent on J Crew, Gustin, Haberdash's sale on Red Wings, and etc. I'm swimming in disposable cash.

                      Are you a Nigerian prince in need of transferring those funds? I can help. Let me send you a box so you can mail the cash to me.

                            as of today i'm on a self-imposed spending freeze for the foreseeable future. I probably spent $700 in the last month alone. I did make an Ashland Leather purchase 3 days ago which I hope I didn't get screwed on. definitely add me to the list. i'm going to have to try really really hard not to buy anything, even if it's a great deal.

                              Definitely share your thoughts and support about not spending, but to be fair to the people that started from the beginning and the integrity of the list, I can't add your name. It started the 1st and the month is almost over.

                                I'm out. Target is closing up shops in Canada, so I wanted to grab a couple more of there Mossimo t-shirts before they shut down and leave me without a go-to basic. Worth the purchase for me, but I'm planning on keeping the challenge going for myself even if there would be an asterisk at the end of the 90 days.
